Skylight Retrofit | Acrylic to Polycarbonate

Curb Mount Skylight Replacement from Acrylic to VELUX LuxGuard Polycarbonate.

Curb mount skylights are common in the Denver metro area. Typically, acrylic domes around 2′ x 4′. And typically energy inefficient, noisy, and susceptible to hail damage.

Caught in the hailstorm that hammered west metro Denver with golf ball and baseball sized stones on May 8, 2017, the two 2′ x 8′ acrylic skylights on this home suffered severe hail damage. Frustrated by the fact that they had been installed only two weeks earlier, the owner sought a different answer.

The benefits of Velux LuxGuard Dome Skylights

Superior Water Management

Dynamic Dome Benefits-Superior Water Management
  • Most commercial skylights allow condensation to collect within an interior gutter.
  • The VELUX Dynamic Dome utilizes a fail-safe proprietary wicking system that evacuates condensation to the exterior of the skylight.
  • A one-piece inner frame creates superior durability and eliminates the need for corner welds that can leak.
  • 50-year silicone.

Secure Thermal Seal

Dynamic Dome Benefits-Secure Thermal Seal
  • An encapsulating design that provides an impenetrable water barrier.
  • With a 100 percent thermally broken skylight frame.
  • Interior surfaces are isolated from exterior temperatures. This ‘warm design’ virtually eliminates condensation.
  • The secure weather seal to the curb impedes air, water, and bug infiltration.
